329-pleasant-avenue-frontCurberd NY writes that designer Karim Rashid is known mostly for his colorful interiors, now he has unleashed some eye-popping exteriors in East Harlem with the help of developer HAP Investments. HAP has tapped Rashid to design a “diamond signature” building in East Harlem, an eight-story, 20-unit stack of what looks like plastic storage bins at 329 Pleasant Avenue.

We love how the architecture blends into the neighborhood – not!
